Games capped at 22 fps at any settings

Enter a description of your issue here, in full detail.
When I attempt to run any games in the nightly build of Citra, they all peak at 22 fps and suffer from audio slowdown. I’ve changed just about every graphics setting to try and isolate the problem, and none of them have changed any of my issues.

  • CPU: Ryzen 5 3600x

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

Getting even 22 fps with LLE audio on is quite impressive. But yea, you should change that back to HLE in Emulation>Configuration>Audio.

Yeah I changed it over to HLE and it’s all resolved now (assuming it should cap at 60 fps). I never considered that audio might be the issue, thanks for the help!

Most 3ds games have a cap of either 30fps or 60fps. Audio and game speed are tied to fps as well, so any speed up or slow down would cause at least the audio to behave poorly sometimes xD
